Boarders are seen on all the oldest rugs.Like I mentioned earlier in my response to another poster, I've done some research on this and found that regular, symmetrical patterns and borders do appear on vintage rugs. My understanding is that the borders are indeed from outside influence, but that influence itself is quite old. You see antique rugs a hundred years old or so with borders.
Did you ever end up trying out a rug from them? Any thoughts?Thanks. I agree on the prices. I'm just thinking of this for our kid's room: https://www.rugvista.com/carpet/gabbeh-loom?artno=CVD15067
Not a huge investment in case it turns out bad. Not authentic, but seems nice enough to play on.
The alternative would be something from thenao.com, as recommended by JPHardy. Or maybe something from a local shop.
